Top intern programs for the Humanities

Since the Humanities reach across so many fields, CIS Abroad is able to place students and interns in just about any area of interest. Since our internship placements and the samples you’ll find on our website are organized by career fields, it may be a little harder to identify placements searching under the broad umbrella of Humanities. We recommend students think about a career field connected to their major and go from there to find their ideal internship opportunities. Below is a list of programs that have provided great internship placements for past students in the Humanities:

This is just a taste of the wide range of opportunities offered through our partner universities around the world for students seeking engaging, immersive study abroad experiences in the Humanities. If you would like to look more in depth at the courses available within a particular program, take a look at the program pages that you are interested in, and scroll down to Academics.
